 "Interning at Generation Hope has been amazing. As a child, I always knew I wanted to work with people and at Generation Hope, I get to work with great people. The Scholars as well as the staff work so hard to make our office feel like home. I couldn't imagine a better internship experience." -Sidney Walker, Summer 2018 Program Intern
